"Thank You"s and Technology Troubles

I'm amazed that I have 18 followers already! That's CRAZY!!! But a big thank you to Lap Band Gal for the shout out! And thanks to everyone who commented on my first post. I genuinely appreciate the support--you guys know how to make a girl smile :)  Also, Lap Band Gal, I chose the Lap Band. My surgeon said she's been doing a lot of Realize Bands lately, but that ultimately she'd leave the decision up to me. She gave me pamphlets for both and I found this really helpful website  to compare the two. So, in the end I chose the Lap Band. I feel that it's better suited for me than the Realize, and also I'm a bit wary about the continual tube type design of the Realize band. Anyway, Thanks again to everyone who commented and started following my blog. I can't wait to start getting to know you all!

Now for the technology troubles...
I tried to do a thank you comment on my first post, but for some reason I'm just not understanding how to go about doing it. Can anyone help? The issue comes about when I'm trying to select a "comment as" option. The options I'm given are: Google Account, LiveJournal, WordPress, TypePad, AIM, and OpenID. I signed up for blogger through my Gmail Account, I'm pretty sure, but when I select that as an option, it tells me to sign in, so I do, but then it has me type in letters from a box for confirmation, so I do that, but when I do, it takes me back to the Google sign in  page. What do I need to do to be able to make a comment? Any help would be terribly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Blogger has been having a lot of trouble with that lately. Some blogs have been fixed. Mine had trouble for over a month, but is fine now. It seems to happen a lot when commenting on some blogs. I hope it fixes itself soon!

I think when you go to log-in you're supposed to leave the "stay signed in" option unchecked. That's what everyone else has found works for them! Hope that helps. :)

Yep your problem is your stay signed in button is checked and wont let you comment. Just check and see that the button isnt checked when you log in next.
